Take up the trek to Cape Byron Lighthouse
The Cape Byron Lighthouse is just another one of the things that are unmissable to do in Byron Bay. Steeped in history with dramatic views of the shoreline, The Cape Byron Lighthouse is the nautical heart of directing seamen across the bay, Byron Bay and delivering magnificent 360 degree coastal views to voyagers. Trek up the headland that is lovely path to the summit of the lighthouse at which you’ll see rain forest gullies melding into the coastline along with a pod of dolphins if you are blessed.
Hot Tip: Park in the first car park before you go through the gates, as they kick the cars out of the main car park right on sundown if you are planning to drive as much as the lighthouse at sundown.
But when you’re able and willing, give the coastal walk a go. Breathe in the fresh coastal air, hear the crashing of the waves, and walk amongst the coastal forests.
